Hot Toys 1/6 "Prison Break: Michael Scofield" Special Ver. Pt.2

The head sculpt resembles Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield in American television series Prison Break. Looking at the face and hair, the overall paint work is good.

In the first episode of Season 1, Michael planned and pretended to rob a bank in order to get himself imprisoned into Fox River. This was the attire Michael wore during his bank robbery.

I believe Michael looks better if Hot Toys can give him a "longer" neck.

Hot Toys is very attentive to detail and even the colours of the striped tie are pretty screen accurate.

You can button up Michael's jacket when he is not in action.

The attire does not restrict Michael's overall movement as it is made of fabric.

As the shoes are also the "feet" of Michael, they provide a wide range of motion for his action poses.

Michael comes with his navy blue baseball cap which I did not show it here.

Unfortunately, the hands for gripping the pistols are the only pair of hands given to Michael. Otherwise, he can hold more basic poses.

The figure has tight joints and thus, no stand is required during my photo shoot.

These were the pistols "Smith & Wesson Model 686 revolver" and "Glock 17" which Michael held inside the bank.

I personally prefer the oval shaped figure stand as it saves space on display shelf. You may refer the box packaging here.

Promotional poster for ASU figure "Eddy Lam"

As my hands are itchy these few days, I did some modifications of the background and design a promotional poster for the 1/6 scale ASU figure "Eddy Lam" (Background Source: Arch20).

Dragon Models 1/6 "Eddy" Hong Kong Airport Security Unit Pt.2

Look at the badge above. He is Eddy Lam - the Airport Security Unit (ASU) officer of the Hong Kong Police Force.

The navy blue beret is made of soft plastic. You can remove the beret from Eddy if you want.

Every ASU officer has a drop leg magazine holder which carries extra magazines for his pistol and submachine gun.

Besides a Browning Hi-Power pistol, Eddy has a set of Motorola radio with earpiece, a pair of handcuffs, a flashlight, a pager, a baton and a digital watch.

Eddy's primary weapon is the German made submachine gun "MP5A3" which is also my favourite SMG at all times.

Of coarse, Eddy has a bulletproof vest which I did not show it during my photo shoot.

As the figure was released in 2003, its body was not very articulated. So, some action poses are not "natural".

Looking at the head sculpt, it reminds me of a Hong Kong actor and singer Ekin Cheng.

The reason I review this figure is because I am currently watching a Hong Kong drama "Airport Strikers 機場特警 (2020)" which motivates me to take "Eddy" out of my toy shelf and take some pictures. You may see my promotional poster here and its packaging here.
